Of the flavors in the KeVita probiotic lineup, Matcha Green Tea is without hesitation the best of the bunch. The taste is extremely palatable, with the smooth flavor of the matcha tea providing an earthiness that helps balance the vinegary notes that are also found in the bottle. It is also the variety that most closely resembles kombucha, which is certainly not a bad thing with that market blossoming. Functionally, it seems to offer similar benefits, with probiotic content and antioxidants being the key components of the drink. Packaging is a 16 oz. bottle that looks very much like a GTâ€™s kombucha bottle (it even has the word â€œSynergyâ€ on the front panel). Placing the USDA Organic seal on the front will definitely help with the target consumer, but we think that thereâ€™s a bit too much text on the front panel. Otherwise, the design is just okay, with the style of the logo seeming at odds with the rest of the package. It has a slight â€œme-tooâ€ feel compared with GTâ€™s, but itâ€™s still some of the nicest packaging available in the probiotic drink category. Overall, the best of the line, but we still feel that it could be improved.
